The Great Western Convention.' There must be a genoral rally! The ball must be kept in motion - the people must bu gathered! And to this end, wc expect all the antislavery papers, far and near, will publish this notice. We expect our sub6cnbers at the West will procure its inserlion in their local papers - we expect the brethren in the ministry, and the class leaders and members and friends, one and all, will mako one "strong pull, a long pull, and a pull altogeiher!" It' each one does his duty, it will bo the greatest and best meeting for the ooor slave, ever held in this country, We lenow of some those of weather-boaten farmers of the Westj and vvo believo the sequel will show that they are ready for this great and good work.
